Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, reshapes the chin either by enhancement with a chin implant or reduction surgery performed on the chin bone. Many times, to achieve facial proportion, chin surgery may be recommended as an addition to rhinoplasty. This is because the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. At PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features, so you feel better about the way you look. Our plastic surgeons have performed thousands of safe and affordable mentoplasty procedures since 1994.
How is Chin Surgery Performed?
Mentoplasty is typically a one-hour procedure,with minimal postoperative discomfort and little downtime. It is done on an outpatient basis, in the privacy and comfort of our fully accredited cosmetic surgery suites in Miami and Tampa.
Most chin surgeries begin with a small incision in the natural crease under your chin or inside the mouth. Because the cuts are inconspicuously placed, there are no visible scars from the procedure. Your surgeon will stretch the tissues to make room for the implant, which is inserted over the existing bone structure. The doctor can also reshape the existing bone to either augment or reduce the size of your chin.
Is Chin Surgery Right for Me?
If you feel that your chin does not “fit” with the rest of your face because it is too large or too small, then chin surgery may be a good option for you. At PREMIERE Center mentoplasty surgery is desired by both men and women as a way to add symmetry to their face and boost their confidence.
What Can I Expect After Chin Surgery?
Most mentoplasty patients will experience mild soreness and swelling, as well as a “tight” feeling in the chin. You will probably need to wear a support brace to minimize swelling and encourage healing. The PREMIERE staff will set up a series of follow-up appointments to track your progress after your chin surgery in Miami or Tampa Bay. Each person’s anatomy is different, so your results may vary.
